Scarborough's history dates back to Roman and Viking times when invaders from overseas landed on the town's beaches. Well-to-do Victorians, invaders of a different kind, used the newly-created railways to flock to Scarborough to take the restorative waters, resulting in the town becoming Britain's first seaside resort. This fascinating volume captures the essence of the town and its people over the decades in a series of photographic pairings which record some of Scarborough's lost landmarks, such as the North Bay Promenade Pier, the arch at Newborough Bar and the town's two swimming pools. Illustrated throughout with carefully selected pictures and photographs of Scarborough's past and modern colour photographs of the same scenes today, this book will delight any lover of Scarborough and its history.
